showed today. Very funny article about Valiquette's season in Russia last year. Every time they go to another city to play that city screws with them and him being the goalie he's a special target. For instance prostitutes banging on his door at 2 in the morning asking him if he wants room service--or in some place called Neftihimik he gets a room without curtains and floodlamps shining through the window all night. Lumpy matresses and beds that are too small or him and 15 of his teammates getting stuck in an elevator just as they're about to go to the arena.
How much is a subscription?
I subscribed to that HF magazine and I think I got 1 issue and never heard from them again, so I am kinda wary about that, but I remember Blueshirt from back in the day, PRE-INTERNET, youngsters, when you actually had to wait more than 30 seconds for up to date info. Actually, I'm surprised The Hockey News is still afloat, because whenever I read it, it's articles from beat writers that are at least a week old and probably more. It must be really tough to keep Blueshirt going b/c they never had nearly as much circulation.
In the U. S. 1 year is $30--that's 10 issues a year. 2 years is $50 and 3 years is $70.
Not super cheap but it is a good read and they have some excellent writers including a number of the beat writers and usually have a couple or three interesting articles on prospects every issue including interviews both with players and their coaches. You can go to the site and subscribe online or you can do it through the mail or over the phone. I've done it by mail and I think also by phone. They rated the junior prospects by the way this time. Pyatt, Cliche and Dupont were all A+.
I subscribed twice. 1st time they never sent my paper. called twice and finally got it resolved. Again the second year same thing happened, than I was getting paper 3-4 weeks late, and I had already seen most of articles. I am leary about 3rd time
